Drake and 11-year-old Sofia Sanchez take selfies in her hospital room on Monday, August 20, 2018, at Lurie Chidlren's Hospital in Chicago.

Sofia Sanchez, a patient at Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, got a surprise visit from the artist after a video she posted of her doing the "KiKi Challenge" was shared on social media, according to WGN.

She even performed the "Kiki Dance Challenge" - the dance meme that uses Drake's song "In My Feelings" - from a wheelchair in the hope of catching his attention. For her birthday, she had two wishes: a new heart and a visit from her idol, Drake.
